- Jewelry using 27-carat diamonds and natural pearls
- This valuable jewelry is from the 1870s when Tiffany & Co. started to make and sell jewelry.
- There were no cultured pearls during the 19th century and so all pearls were natural. During this time, pearls were as expensive as a same-sized diamond.
A technique no longer reproducible
What is Cannetille?
Since the mining output of gold and other gems was extremely limited during the beginning of the 19th century, they were very expensive. For that reason, a technique called Cannetille was used to make the jewelry impressive with a small number of gems. This handmade technique is currently impossible to reproduce.
At the museum, you can experience wearing a fancy vintage dress!
How about taking a photo in a vintage dress for a memory of your trip? Once you wear dresses, you’ll feel just like a princess! There are also outfits for men, so you can also enjoy as couples.
